. for individual retirement accounts, i.r.a.'s, under the tax code. today retirees are more likely to rely on 401k's and i.r.a.'s and are less likely to have defined benefit plans from their employers. at the same time, the natural products have become increasingly complex. because the rules governing the rights of investors and the responsibilities of advisors are more than 35 years old, d.o.l. is attempting to modernize these rules and -- in order to reflect the changing nature of the retirement marketplace. given these realities it is necessary for the department to make sure that the professionals offering retirement advice have a duty to put their clients' interests first before their own or at very least tell their customers that they may be conflicting. at the same time the s.e.c. is considering moving forward on a rule making that would impose a uniform fiduciary standard of conduct for broker dealers and investment advisors, consistent with the dodd-frank act. this would ensure that whatever the business model, if an individual is providing personalized investment advice out securities to

drinks. city supervisor scott weiner is proposing a new tax. today he'll suggest a two- cents per ounce tax on sugary drinks. a can of soda, for example, would cost 24 cents more. the money would be used to pay for health programs for the city's young people. if approved, the proposal would go on the november ballot next year. the cost of building the new arena for the warriors in san francisco continues to go up. warriors owners say the coast to rehabilitate the pier which the arena will -- the cost. sit on is costing as much as 170-million- dollars. that is a lot higher than they had originally planned. the team is also facing a shrinking time frame to get the project completed for the 2017 to 2018 sesaon. that is when there lease on runs out at oracle arena in oakland. the new arena would include an 18,000-seat arena, two parking garages, a hotel, two condominium towers and retail space spread across the 13-acre pier. the warriors are playing tomorrow and we will speak with sports with gary radnich coming up his stanley roberts and people behaving badly. taking this live look at s f

that he worked on. liberals want more government, more taxes, and completely amoral cultural system. this is your children's book this summer. if you ever forget who you should vote for, read this book. and if you ever have kids, give them nightmares some day. >> in a campaign, you learn to organize. they're a huge part of the republican party. along with big business. there are only so many ceos in the world. this is a tight race. first experienced negative campaigning. i hope that it goes well. the music ends up being dark and negative. that's what i wanted to be associated with janet is negativity. she looks sickly. it's bound to help you subliminally. then, of course, the second half of the song, it's upbeat, leaving darkness, we're going to go to the happy place. people can make the argument that it's manipulation. but our goal is to win election. that's the point of policy. to win elections. basically everything i would like to be called and i'm paying for it. >> you beal in the top tier of people capable of handling it. >> sickly. janet looks sickly. where i could see, she di

the case like the grimes campaign did, a state that takes in more federal money than it pays back in taxes damaged kentuckyians. statewide you can run that way. but these house districts it's hard to sell that story. >> david ignatius people talk about the republican party. there's so many different republican parties. i talk about, you got the governors. and the success of the governors that they've had. then you got basically the senate wing of the republican party and then the house wing of the republican party. and what works for one definitely doesn't work for the other and certainly what works for some house members actually undermines presidential candidates who have any, any dream of being able to compete with hillary clinton. >> we'll see if the chris christie wing of the party, the party that will talk about how to govern and make a big state like new jersey work if that gets traction. one of the things i've been following the last few weeks is the backlash in some hard line republican house tea party districts against those tea party hard liners. for example, justin amosh from m
, the republican position, this no revenues thing, even if it's revenues to stop massive tax abuse, massive tax evasion, that kind of position in the end that leads us to cutting food stamps. today it starts. big cuts for the poorest people in the country, day after halloween. you are getting millions of people cut today on their ability to eat and feed their kids. why? because they are standing up in congress, still. don't make the banks pay taxes. don't make google and amazon and apple pay taxes. let them keep their money. >> i understand. let's talk -- let's talk about the big issue. >> it's collapsing. >> let's talk about the big issue and i think we agree on this. by the way, i agree, we shouldn't slash and burn the 12, 13, 14% and leave the big entitlement systems out of touch. you have harry reid asked in an interview about medicare and social security. he said why do you keep bringing it up? you are obsessed with it. we are not going to do anything on those. we are not going to touch those. that's where the long term -- if we want to save america from debt, that's the long term fix. >>
their support. their tax exempt status including the big hospital up in boston that's where, what is it, the patriots, new england patriots get their rehab done. >> that's right. it may lose its tax exempt status. sort of under the microscope under obama care. >> unbefore the boston -- in fact, the last boston marathon victim who had to have a leg amputateds a result of the boston bombing, there he is sadly, it's called the spalding rehabilitation hospital. it's run by a 501 c 3, non-private hospital. under obama care, one of the sicious obama care would provide charity to people coming in off the streets that don't have healthcare coverage. now that law because of obama care scrutinized where they are having to roll back the charitable contributions they give to the community in the case of folks that come in off the street that don't have health insurance. >> former president jimmy carter whose name has become synonymous with oppressing attacked obama care yesterday saying this doesn't work very well. when jimmy carter calls you ineffect actual that's 6 people signing up because the w
. they don't care about hard-working americans who own property, who pay taxes. these regulations could be -- keep you from developing your property, keep you from perhaps fixing a storage issue, drain issue on your property, if you have water drainage issues, you need to fill in some holes or something. these regulations will keep you from doing what you want to do, what's best for your property. >> you know, it sounds, in addition to a great big power grab, it sounds like this is also a way to create some fine revenue, where if you're doing something wrong -- and who knows what it is -- it's broad enough they can say anything is wrong, they're going to start levying fines against people for standing water on your property. >> right. or you have to get a permit. i think the bigger picture is about control because environmentalists don't want land to be developed. they don't want oil or gas or coal to be drilled out of the ground. remember, the e.p.a. has regulations on the coal industry. it's killing jobs and it's bankrupting the coal industry. when you think about it, it's a power gra
, that's a tax? we didn't call it a tax but that's a tax you got to pay so that more folks have access? is that fair? is that what it is really? >> what i would say to those folks, it's going to depend on their individual, you know, situation because if they are in a group market where they already had group employers sponsored insurance, that's a different situation. if they are in an individual market, what you can say to them now, they'll have access to health care and now have a competitive market. >> if you're paying -- >> time is expired. >> i appreciate you, thank you. >> thank you, all. this discussion about websites that don't work. let's talk about a website that does. on whitehouse.gov right now, if you go to whitehouse.gov, health insurance reality check, headline, you can keep your health insurance if you like it, currently on their website. linda douglas of the white house office of health reform debunks the myth that reform will force you out of your current insurance plan, if you like it, force you to change doctors, period. to the contrary, reform will expand your choi
tax. stuart: that's important because the website crashed in a test days before the launch. >> those are confidence questions. >> why didn't miss sebelius go ahead and launch? did she tell the president it was a mess before it started? that's a good question. >> of course even the bigger questions are, why did this administration lie to the american people again and again? >> okay, the question right, that's just been asked, are there any penalties for the contractors, and here is miss sebelius' response. >> and coordinate the activities moving forward which have to be driven with a very clear set of outcomes, very accountable time lines and deadlines and they will be helping to manage that process. >> on the issue of the security, there was a security breach that arose recently that i read about at any rate and what i think is very important here because the issue of privacy has been raised and i think that that has been answered because very importantly, there isn't any health insurance in these systems, but there is financial information. so my question to you is, has a security w
should pass a budget that cuts things we don't need and closes tax loopholes that don't help create jobs so we can free up resources for the things that do create jobs and growth. building new roads. building new bridges and schools and airports. that creates jobs. >> too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges and for the few that have, they are experiencing sticker shock. the president told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it is more than just a website, and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> the white house released a progress report on the website fix saying it is improving with users waiting less than a second for wages to load, compared to eight. they are work to go improve application process. wanda summers and ed o'keefe. good morning to you both. thanks for joining me. >> good to see you, alex. >> as the the house and senate negotiators met on tuesday, they are just waiting to reach a deal and we reach the debt ceiling february 7th. will it turn into another 11th hour fight? or might we get something done unt
affordable health care as everybody else. a lot of people will qualify for new tax credits under this law that will bring down costs even further. so that if you lose your job or you start a new business or you are self-employed and you are a young person looking at several jobs until you find one that sticks, you can stay insured, insurance that goes with you and gives you freedom, without fear of accidents or illness will derail your dreams. this marketplace is open now. insurance companies are competing for that business. the deal is good. the prices are low. but let's face it, we have had a problem. the web site hasn't worked the way it's supposed to over the last couple of weeks. and as a consequence, people haven't had a chance to see how good the prices for quality, affordable health insurance through these marketplaces really are. ultimately this web site, healthcare.gov will be the easiest way to shop and buy these plans because you can compare prices and see what kind of coverage it provides. but, look, there's no denying it, right now, the web site is too slow, too many people

. congress of years ago passed a law that enables all judges to divest themselves without adverse tax consequences, which was a law that had been appointed since about 1982 the people coming to the executive branch. it applies to the judiciary, and the number of the justices and judges have done that. they have to roll over their investment in testing into a conflict free account, tax-free transaction. so that excuse which may have motivated some people. i agree 100%. there is a separate problem about what to do about children who are practicing law, and i think the justices have come to understand about that and they have a policy on. i think everybody comfortable because in part there are so many of them that have so many different relatives around that it seems to work tolerably well. >> that seems all too to me but congress also passed another law in 1974 which made it, which illuminated the old rule which was e more to reduce you had to have a substantial financial interest. now it's even one share forces are recusal. that seems to me to be problematic. yes, it would be wonderful

device tax on an industry that represents about two-and-a-half percent of our gross domestic product in massachusetts that will cost jobs here in massachusetts. one of the problems is what we did in massachusetts was tailored to our population. it took advantage of health care and a number of different things, one of them, steve, was the fact that we had merged the non-group market with the individual market to try to spread out risks. what does the federal plan do? well, it reduces the number of rating factors we can use to evaluate risk for that pool. it's undermine wack we want to do. in fact, we have pleaded with our governor, governor patrick has asked the federal government, give us a waiver so that we can evaluate and price risk fairly and yet we now are going to be forced to use 4 rating factors as opposed to 106789 that's one of the major points of distinction here, massachusetts plan worked because it was designed for pennsylvania. we had expertise, for instance, in pricing risks. we had growth markets in medical devices. yet, when we look at what's happening at the federal
